Playing with Transparencies over GIFs

This week I focused on making still images, transparent in areas and placing gifs within the transparency. I played with nature in the first two- using a white flower that was made transparent and then with orca whales placed in it to look like the whales are swimming in the pedals. I then found footage of a volcano erupting and placed it within a patch of flowers (again made transparent) to show the beauty of life and destruction. The third I just made today about one of my favorite artists by grabbing a clip of the movie trailer for “Frida” behind an image of Frida Kahlo that was made into a stencil. The effect became almost like memories as the images flash, showing her face as a glowing stencil at the end. These were my favorite works thus far!
